Giants catcher Joey Bart
If and when Joey Bart is called up in 2020, it will likely be the most highly anticipated moment in recent Giants memory.
As the team’s top prospect, he carries with him the lofty expectation that he could be a future face of the franchise.
He has shown promise in the lower levels of the minors, and if he starts strong at Triple-A where he is likely to start the year, we could see him get called up before the All-Star break.
It will not be the same situation that Buster Posey stepped into in 2010 when he was called up during the heat of a pennant race, but fans are still chomping at the bit to see what Bart can do at the MLB level.
Expectations will be high no matter what, but it would be wise to temper them. He is a rookie after all, and he will most likely not be starting every day when he first gets called up. Still, it will be exciting to see what Bart is capable of when he finally debuts.
